The FirstAid4Youth is a long-term project related to first premedical aid. The project equipped 48 youth workers (in 4 phases) with advanced tools, skills, and expertise in the field of in-depth first aid,
creating an safe and efficient platform to exchange of experiences (supervised by 2 experienced medical workers and 2 psychodrama practitioners) with the scope of providing mental comfort to the casualty of the accident.

They learned to better their own First Aid skills, while also learning how to teach youth these valuable skills. This training course helped them increase their confidence in case of an emergency and to share these skills with their communities!
